Asked by a reader of the Langkawi Gazette, where he could meet Expats on Langkawi, I asked around and we came up with the following places:
Charli’s Place (Langkawi Yacht Club), Pier, Cappuccino House and Shore Cafe.
Oasis, Babylon, Beach Garden, Red Tomato, 1812 Bar
Telaga: Tapas Bar
I am sure this list is in no way complete. Reader, if you know a nice place where Expats hang out on Langkawi – please comment!
But this list already shows, that THE ONE Bar for Expats is probably missing – specially in Kuah. There are many possibilities in Kuah – but in none of these places the Expats really feel ‘at home’.
The Mangoes is still an insider tip. We will bring more about it, as soon as they will have their website up and running.
The Shore Cafe – close to Pekan Rabu – has been taken over by Ray, formerly working in “Silversand” and then in the “Cappuccino House”. She is known to many as being a very nice and helpful person. On Friday Evenings about 15 or so expats have a pool competition and a “Curry” in her Shore Cafe.
The new Amanda Coffee & Tea in Pekan Rabu is a nice place with good Coffee and Sandwiches – but serving no alcohol has no chance to be or become a serious hangout place for expats.
